When Anna Met Will

Anna met Will for the first time shortly after his birth. We had settled in to the room where we would be staying and I had changed into my own pajama. It was the same purple pajama I wore after Anna was born.

I wanted Anna's visit to be special so I had pictures of her in Will's crib and she was so happy and pointed to them when she saw them. I also prepared a gift bag full of goodies for her. She wasn't too interested in the bag, but was excited to see me and baby. When she first saw me, she yelled out "Mama! Up!" Once she got up on my bed, she saw Will and exclaimed "Baby!" Of course, after the novelty wore off, she was off to do her own stuff.

We were in the hospital for 2 days, 1 night. We could have stayed an extra night, but opted to check out early. Our room was cramped and we missed Anna and knew that we would be more comfortable at home. Will was doing well, I was doing well, so the doctors had no problems letting us go. '

So by 1pm on 11/16, just about 41 hours after we checked in, we took our new baby home to start a new set of adventures.

A gigantic THANK YOU to hubby's mom who helped out a bunch. No way we could have survived without her.

  1. So exciting! Those are some very sweet touches to make it special for Anna. Btw, would love to hear how the bf-ing goes this time, whenever you have time ;)

  2. @ donya: I am making an attempt to actually nurse this time instead of just pumping. Will let you know how it goes after I get more weeks under my belt!
